Small Enterprise Center of Excellence
The Small Enterprise Center of Excellence (SECE) aims to create a supportive ecosystem for micro and small enterprises that promote traditional livelihoods through a portfolio of capacity building programs and services. The center primarily focuses on building operational and marketing capabilities of micro-entrepreneurs.
This is done through intensive implementation of a toolkit developed in-house that enables micro entrepreneurs to map their operations and supply chain, understand their cost structures, define their markets, build marketing skills, budget effectively and adapt simple monitoring processes.
The program operates with a combination of hands-on training and mentoring and is highly scalable. Its goal is to ensure that micro-enterprises drive generation of secure livelihoods in rural India with sustainable capabilities and a strong market orientation.
